TEFL Courses Ireland

Explore our range of TEFL courses

You can enrol on any of the following TEFL courses: Online Level 3 TEFL Certificate, Online Level 5 TEFL Diploma or Combined Level 5 TEFL Diploma, depending on how you intend to use your TEFL qualification. So, which option from our TEFL courses is right for you?

Our Level 3 TEFL certificate course will introduce you to TEFL (teaching English as a foreign language). It is an online-only course and leads to a 120hr TEFL certificate. It is the best option if you want to find casual work teaching English, such as volunteer teaching, teaching whilst backpacking, plus some online roles. 

Our Level 5 TEFL diploma course goes into more detail. It can be studied online or online with classroom learning (combined) and leads to a 168hr TEFL diploma. Our classroom learning is delivered face-to-face at one of our Irish Campuses. A Level 5 TEFL course is the best option if you want to find formal work teaching English, such as the contracted roles from our TEFL Jobs Board, or government teaching programmes, which usually include accommodation, flight reimbursement and help to get your work visa.

TEFL Course FAQ

There are many choices when it comes to TEFL courses in Ireland - and The TEFL Academy is the top choice for thousands of Irish TEFL teachers. Let’s be real: there are loads of TEFL course providers online and in Ireland. When it comes to choosing a TEFL course, do your due diligence and make sure you choose a company that is reputable and respected. The TEFL Academy is internationally recognised. We are accredited by Qualifi and our courses are awarded by Ofqual. Our TEFL tutors are professional, well-qualified and experienced. We have won awards for Top TEFL Course in 2019, 2020 and 2021! We have seen over 200,000 graduates walk out our (virtual) doors with a TEFL qualification. We have placed over 15,000 interns and volunteers in teaching positions all over the world. Don’t just take our word for it, we have the highest average review ratings of any TEFL course provider on all the major review aggregator sites.

The TEFL Academy offers online and combined courses. Our Level 3 120-hour course and Level 5 168-hour course can be completed totally online. We are the first TEFL course provider to offer a Level 5 40-hour Observed Teaching Practice course, which is also 100% online. Our 30-hour Top-Up courses are also on offer: Teaching Business English, Teaching Young Learners, and Teaching Online and 1:1.

Our Level 5 168-hour Combined TEFL course includes 10 hours of classroom instruction. In Ireland, these courses take place in Dublin and Galway. This in-class component gives you the opportunity to spread your wings as a teacher and put the theory into practice. And meet other TEFL Academy students!

Anywhere your heart desires! TEFL teachers are in demand in countries all over the world, from Turkey to Thailand to Tunisia. The beauty of a TEFL certification is that you can choose where you want to live and work. Don’t forget that you can always work online!

A TEFL course with The TEFL Academy in Ireland costs from €350 to €850.

A combined Level 5 TEFL course, or an online-only Level 5 TEFL is recommended if you are considering a formal TEFL job, or teaching long-term. A Level 3 TEFL course is perfectly adequate if you are interested in teaching English as a volunteer or in an informal context. The important consideration for your TEFL qualification is that it is at least 120 hours and the TEFL course provider is internationally recognised, accredited and reputable.

With The TEFL Academy you can do a TEFL course online, which means you can do it from wherever you might be. If you choose to do the Level 5 168-hour combined course, you can do the 10-hour practical component in Dublin or Galway.

The TEFL course you choose depends on your needs. If you are wanting to teach English as a foreign language in a volunteer or short-term position (think summer camp), then a Level 3 course is totally adequate. However, if you are looking for more formal or long-term employment, a combined Level 5 TEFL course or an online-only Level 5 TEFL is recommended. TEFL employers require their teachers to have a TEFL certification of at least 120 hours. Regardless of whether you do a Level 3 or a Level 5, make sure your course is at least 120 hours.

Absolutely! These days an online TEFL certification is equally as reputable as a face-to-face certification. What is important is the length of the course, the accreditation of the qualification, and the reputation of the course provider. The TEFL Academy offers a Level 3 120-hour online course and a Level 5 168-hour online course. These qualifications are 100% online. If you would like to do a practical component to complement your Level 5 course, you can do a 10-hour face-to-face component. Another option is the 40-hour Level 5 Observed Practice course, which is also done online.

If you are over 16 years old and are a fluent English speaker, then you are able to do a TEFL course and become TEFL-qualified.

In a nutshell? Yes! A TEFL certification from an internationally recognised, accredited and reputable TEFL course provider is your ticket to living the lifestyle you’ve always dreamed of. Travelling the world, moving whenever and wherever you want, and having the luxury of knowing you’ll be able to find a job - this is what TEFL can do for you.

“It turns out this was one of the best decisions I have ever made. My only regret is not doing it sooner!”
